The Band and Jeff Healey to Be Enshrined on Canada's Walk of Fame

The Band and blind blues-rock musician Jeff Healey are among the six people and groups to be enshrined on Canada's Walk of Fame.

The Walk was started in 1998 to celebrate Canadians who have excelled in music, sports, film, television, writing, visual arts, performing arts, science and innovation. Also being inducted are actors Ryan Reynolds and Rachel McAdams, athlete Hayley Wickenheiser and former supreme court justice Louise Arbour.

Melanie Hurley, CEO of Canada's Walk of Fame, said "We are proud to welcome these six new outstanding honourees to Canada’s Walk of Fame. Each have impacted Canada’s social and cultural heritage across the country and around the world. They are inspiring and remind us that anything can be achieved with hard work, dedication, passion and integrity. They are ambassadors of Canada and instill pride in our country."

The honorees will be celebrated on Saturday, October 18 on the Walk of Fame Yellow Carpet at the Sony Centre For the Performing Arts in Toronto. A television special on the ceremony will be broadcast on Friday, December 19 on the Global network.

In addition, the Allan Straight Award, honoring young, inspirational Canadians, will be given to The Weeknd.
